In 2017, the First Responders Foundation was approached to organize and host Guns N Hoses, a charity boxing event between local area police officers and firefighters that hadn’t reoccurred since 2012.

When our marketing committee got together to discuss all the facets we would need to address, our calendar soon developed to cover:

  • Sponsorships
  • Ticketing & sales
  • Online marketing
  • Print advertising
  • Radio and TV
  • Logo development
  • Billboards
  • Posters and flyers
  • Event program design
  • Show flow and scriptwriting
  • Merchandise
  • Signage

It was a mammoth of an event to tackle, but we exceeded our expectations! Over 4,000 people from all over the Metro came to watch Omaha police officers and firefighters duke it out in the ring for a good cause, and we surpassed our fundraising goal making it the single largest fundraiser the foundation has seen to date.
